Good evening,

As predicted, when I came home from work the NAS was again endlessly rebooting.

I went to check /var/log/dmesg through another computer, and then I noticed something strange.. It's identical to the previous dmesg!

So I went on checking, and at the third line it struck me:

Quote:
Linux version 3.3.4-88f6281 (root@build2.dd-hot24.nas.buffalo.local) (gcc version 4.2.0 20070413 (prerelease)) #2 Mon Dec 10 17:31:41 JST 2012

From the looks of it, I am booting a 3.3.4 (same as mine at last try), but this kernel has been compiled in 2012..

Here you can see both logs: first and second. When I look at the 'date modified' of /var/log/dmesg, it is March 15th 2013 at around 9pm.. The time I reinstalled the stock firmware again. I am totally lost! :lol:

I installed the kernel like here (same pastebin link as last post), but it is somehow still booting the old kernel?!

edit: Just some thoughts: The NAS has two partitions that start with LS-WVL-EM077, this looks like it's in EM. Maybe the NAS replaces the kernel with a special 'EM' kernel when it goes into EM?
edit2: Nope, the uImage.buffalo still has a timestamp from this morning when I installed it.

I think I am doing something wrong with the compiling or installation. Can you check whether I am doing this right?

Oh and btw, I used kernel 3.3.4 last time, and patch6 gave no error!

I am now emailing with hato, which is a lot quicker and more convenient than using something like forums for such short questions/answer.

But to not fear, I will not forget this topic! Once I am done and have my LS-WVL up and running with Debian and a vanilla kernel, I will try my best to document my experience and upload all the files I used

Ladies and gentlemen,

I am now running debian squeeze with a vanilla 3.8.3 kernel on my LS-WVL without NAND. I am only here to report it, and I will do my best to extensively document everything.

All credits go to hato, without him this would not have been possible. Stay tuned for more!

Good to hear. I am almost done writing the guide. Tomorrow I will finish it, show it to hato so he can give his input and put the link online.

I am referring to some files in the guide, I would like to have FTP access to the NAS central ftp server. Any idea how to get that?

Just like to do a +1 here. Would be very keen to get debian running.
